's face it, the middle class was getting hammered, long before the financial crisis hit. technology made us more productive but also made a lot of good jobs obsolete. global trade brought us cheaper products, but it also allowed companies to hire in low-wage countries. american workers saw their paychecks squeezed, even as corporate profits rose and ceos' salaries exploded and pensions and health care slowly started disappearing. and these fundamental changes in the economy, the rise of technology and global competition, they're real. we can't wish these and global competition wlsh here's what i know, wisconsin, we can meet that because we're americans, and we have the world's best workers and the world's best aupt paren irs. we have the best scientists and the best researchers, the best colleges and ooufrtsz, and we've got the most innovative spirit. we have everything we need to thrive in this new economy. in this new century and there's not a country in the earth that wouldn't change places with the united states of america. but we have a choice to make. in five days we will choose ou

the mobile phone, only two technologies had spread as widely as the mobile phone. note elegies ever spread as rapidly. the only other recent one was the transistor radio and arguably before that it was fire so we know what mobile telephony means and smartphones and all that, but what does it mean for the majority of the worlds population? it's the communication highway. we dealt highways, communications highways into connecting people never connected before. in afghanistan attack about the story. you asked me about entrepreneurs who was responsible for creating the afghan cell phone can any. this is maybe the biggest story not invest in the last 10 years and we don't hear about it. why? because the fact that more afghans today have access to mobile telephony and know how to read or write, were a decade ago that would affect about 700 miles to make a phone call. but that's not a story. it is a story. it's a big story. for an ordinary afghan incentive and means a lot in terms of capabilities. but what is more exciting you think when you built the railroad, there's a lot of movies made. what
